Opening This Weekend: A New Choreopoem by Renee Mitchell (Portland, Ore.)

January 15th, 2008

Renee Mitchell, artist-at-large, has a new show going up this weekend, “Tangoing with Tornadoes.” The performance includes music, poetry, singing and interpretative dance. Choreographed by Judith Rizzio and directed by Barbara Kite, the show stars Mitchell, Sharon Martini, Nasir Najieb and Raheve Gray. Performances will be 7 p.m. Friday-Sunday, plus 3 p.m. Sunday matinee, January 18-27th, 2008.

The show, Mitchell says, “speaks to the power of our words” and is about domestic violence, “a heavy subject to be sure, but it’s presented in a creative way that entertains, informs and, at times, inspires you to laugh out loud.”

The show is sponsored by Self Enhancement Inc., Multnomah County, and NappyRoots Press. Financial support was also given by the Healing Roots Center, the African American Chamber of Commerce and other local organizations and community leaders. Shows will be held at the Center for Self Enhancement Inc., 3920 N. Kerby Ave., Portland, Ore.

Admission is free; please call to RSVP to guarantee seats: 503-249-1721, Ext. 259 or e-mail christyh at selfenhancement dot org
